MUSEUMS IN A DIGITAL CULTURE: HOW ART AND HERITAGE BECOME MEANINGFUL. Ed. by Chiel van den Akker and Susan Legene. Amsterdam University Press, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 142 pp. with 10 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9789089646613 In English.
Publisher's description: The experience of engaging with art and history has been utterly transformed by information and communications technology in recent decades. We now have virtual, mediated access to countless heritage collections and assemblages of artworks, which we intuitively browse and navigate in a way that wasn't possible until very recently. This collection of essays takes up the question of the cultural meaning of the information and communications technology that makes these new engagements possible, asking questions like: How should we theorize the sensory experience of art and heritage? What does information technology mean for the authority and ownership of heritage?
